At the start of Round 3, we had JK Silvertown versus We Pay People. This was the biggest game of Group A so far as it saw 2 of the top 3 teams meet head-to-head in direct competition. Both teams possessed a 100% record so this promised to be a very good game.

So far, JK Silvertown had lead both their games at half-time by a score of 4-1. If they could repeat that then they would be sending out a huge message to the other teams in this tournament. Despite Chris Wright's 7th goal of the tournament the English team found themselves 2-1 behind at the break. This was the first goal We Pay People had conceded all day. JK Silvertown needed to breach that defence again in the second half.

Instead, We Pay People extended that lead and by full-time the win was quite emphatic (for a top of the table clash). The game eventually finished 5-1 and We Pay People were flying 9 points, 13 goals scored and just 1 conceded. For the record there was a Yassine Farah hat-trick plus goals from Abdou Saoui and Nafeh.

 
 
 

Next up we had FC Fylde Old Boys B versus Some Like It Scott. At the start of Round 3 we had a clearly defined top 3 and bottom 3. If one of these teams wanted to bridge that Cup they needed to win their final 3 games to have any hope of qualifying for the Cup.

It was perhaps a surprise to see Fylde FC Old Boys B in this position. On their debut last year, FC Fylde B team had a cracking start to the 2017 Krakow Trophy as they recorded 12 points from a possible 15 on their way to winning Group B. They went on to reach the Cup Semi-Finals where they met a multi-national Big Time Krakow team representing Poland. In a really tight game, FC Fylde missed out on a debut final as they lost 2-1.

So far it was 2 defeats out of 2 and they were on their way to a third here. Some Like It Scott opened up a 2-0 lead by half-time. Alex Redfern and Scott Jessop scored the goals that gave them hope of a first victory of the day. Whilst they were unable to add to their tally in the second half, a solid defensive display from Robert Dinsey and his defence saw them through to the win they needed.

 
 
 

Wandsworth Athletic (Eng) made their debut in eurofootballfives.com competition in 2011. They competed at the Valencia Fives and went unbeaten to claim second position in Group A and qualify for the Cup. Their charge for glory was ended in the Quarter-Finals, 3-1, by 2-times eurofootballfives winners Lozenetz City of Bulgaria.

The 2016 Budapest Fives was a welcome return to @eurofootball5 action but a struggle as Wandsworth Athletic finished 5th of 6 teams in Group A. Wandsworth Athletic are used to playing on Goals/Powerleague style pitches so the Amsterdam Fives was expected to suit them. The 2011 Valencia Fives was also played on the same style pitches.

It certainly looked like these pitches were to Wandsworth Athletic's taste as they had picked up 6 points from 6 so far. That was soon to become 9 points from 9.

After two successive 4-1 wins they rattled off a superb 6-0 victory over SC Sylt (Ger) in Round 3. James Platt (2), Andy Michel (2), Owen Smith-Palmer and Tim Rickard all added to their personal tally for the day. Not to be outdone, there was a first clean sheet of the day for Matt Snelling and his defence. Wandsworth Athletic were our new leaders in Group A.
